OOEL Planetary Health: Way to go, Karan!

10 May

Karan’s photo for our Out of Eden Learn Planetary Health club was featured today on Out of Eden’s social media sites – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. With thousands of students in OOEL, it’s quite something to have your work featured. This is the information that Karan wrote about this particular photo:

During my neighborhood walk in Chennai, India, I saw a Coconut seller. Coconut water is really refreshing and is great to drink on hot days. As the Coconut grows, some of the Coconut water stays as Coconut water, but the other half of the Coconut water turns into a white type of pulp that is called Coconut meat. 94% of Coconut water is water which means it provides a lot of water which helps dehydration. However Coconut milk is a whole other thing . Coconut milk is made by adding water to the cut coconut meat. Usually, Coconut milk contains about 50% water. A Coconut takes about 10-12 months to fully grow. Coconut water comes from young Coconuts about 6-7 months old. Coconut water is very healthy and contains many nutrients.

Ask Karan to show you his other photos. They were really nice! Congratulations.
